I used Fancy Frills, Doodlpops, Cute Cuts, and stickers on this layout.
The monsters are so cute! I really liked this line from Doodlebug.
Here is my other side: pregnant mother-to-be!

I have 3 more months in this pregnancy so I really should start thinking about a baby album of some sort! I can't wait for the new products from CHA so I can get inspired for spring and summer!
Hopefully I can find some inspiration today.....

I did manage to squeek out some more time to create yesturday. I made this cute little card with Washi tape and Doodlebug stickers. I pop-dotted the letter in the bird's mouth to add some dimension, as well as the scalloped square sticker.
I also made a banner for this very snowy winter we are having. It has snowed pretty much everyday for quite awhile now, or maybe it just feels that way! I used the Winter Twig Collection from Little Yellow Bicycle. I used my Cricut and the Cartridge Cheerful Seasons to cut the letters. The ribbon was from Heidi Swapp- something I have had in my stash forever! I used a Martha Stewart snowflake punch and a scallop circle punch from Fiskars for the two ends.
It is very cold outside again so it will be another day of scrappin'! Stay Warm!

I just love Doodlebug products! I really like the Doodlepops and mini-Doodlepops- they are just so cute! This bird is a Doodlepop and he is super cute. The sentiment is a rub-on from Pebbles Inc. but other than that, all products are Doodlebug, even the Valentine twine from last year. Hopefully I will have some more time today to create- I am in withdrawl from last weekend's marathon of cards!

I had a fun day of creating! I started to make a layout with this collection from Little Yellow Bicycle last year and never finished so I pulled it out and finally put something together. I adore this line called Winter Twig. It was so cute with all the different blues and snowflakes. I bought a ton of paper from this collection and now I need to find ways to use it up!
Everything is from the Winter Twig line and I used the doily punch by Martha Stewart for the top and bottom border. The felt snowflakes are from Little Yellow Bicycle but from an old winter line.
I was also inspired to make some mini-cards for Valentine's Day. The Cute Cuts from Doodlebug are perfect to do this as they make putting together a card so easy!
Just add some stickers, pearls, and a sentiment and here is a cute card!
I added some stickles to the flower and the sentiment is a rub-on from Kaiser Kraft. I will admit that I love rub-ons and I am sad that they are losing popularity. They are handy to use on cards and layouts so you do not have to print on your computer all the time.
I had these x's and o's left over from a Doodlebug Headline and thought this was a cute way to use them. I added an "I love you" sentiment inside the card.
These red letter stickers are from an old Doodlebug line. All the papers for these mini-cards were Doodlebug, either Sweet Cakes or Sweet Love, as were the embellisments.
Here is my scrapping cat Tao with my cards- she just has to be with me when I am creating!

It is definitely NOT fall around here- this is my husband digging us out post blizzard! It actually did not turn out to be as bad as they had predicted but we still got a fair amount of snow and lots of wind. Now it is really cold as well! Oh January.....
I was lucky enough to have a snow day yesturday and I got to create all day long! I made this fall layout which was actually of my 2 nieces but I switched the picture for the blog to my husband and I posing in the leaves. I am 3 months pregnant in this picture and showing quit a bit! I used a mixture of fall themed Imaginisce papers and Bella Blvd. stickers from Finally Fall for this layout. I also used a circle punch and a scallop punch by Fiskars.

I just love snow days! We are under a blizzard warning and it is the perfect day to be cozy with a cup of tea and a room full of scrappy fun!
I guess I am in a love kind of mood since I made 2 Valentine cards today. I used my all-time fav. company- Doodlebug- to make these two cards. The rub-on sentiment above is from Bazzill and the sticker below is from Paper Co. All the paper and the stickers is from last year's Valentine line from Doodlebug: Sweet Cakes.

Well another day of Blogger not working! I am uploading my pictures in HTML which seems to be working but is not as convienent as the other way. Technology is great, when it works, and when it doesn't- it makes me so mad!!!
Here is my layout using last year's Christmas Wishes by Bella Blvd. I was a little sad they did not put out a Christmas line this year since this one was so cute and I am a big fan of Bella products. Check out their website for sneak peaks this week of their new product to come in Feb.- very excited!
I loved the idea for taking a picture in a Christmas ball which I saw in a post on the Bella Website. I took pictures of my cats and I, as well as with my husband.
I used Bella tape and cut it thinner to make these strips. The red dotted paper was actually from Family Dynamix but it matched this line and I wanted a more subtle red pattern than the hearts of stripes that came with the line.

What a wacky Blog! Something is wrong with the upload function and I finally figured out a temporary fix but it is a little wonky! I used We R Memory Keepers for this layout, which I just LOVE! The line is called Winter Frost and it comes with the softest palette of blue, green, grey, and creme/white. I used a Martha Stewart snowflake punch and a Fiskars snowflake punch for the top and bottom snowflakes. I also used a Memory Box die called Frosty Border which I am absolutley in love with! I used an EK Success punch to make the chevron strip down the side. I handmade my tag and knotted mushroom/grey ribbon to it. The title is Thickers cloth letters in white. I hope this crazy blog works tomorrow!
I am not a techno wizard by any means and I get so annoyed when computers do not work when I want them to!!!! I have been trying to post my layout pictures for 2 days now and for some reason the blog will not upload photos from my computer. So until this crazy thing starts working again.......craft, craft, and craft some more!!!
